DALLAS. Jan. 22 Dallas high
basketball fans experienced that
rare thrill of a victory for their
home high school team over a big
ger town's quintet, tonight when
the local boys triumphed over
Corvallis high 20 to 18.
Both teams played poor ball In
the first half, seeming to lack life.
Dallas led at half time, 6 to 5.
Corvallis speeded up in the third
quarter and forged five points
ahead, the score, being 15 to 10 at
The margin was exactly the
same with three minutes left to
play, and then Dallas suddenly
"snapped out of it" and 'scored
the points necessary to win.
The B squads also engaged in
a tight battle, Corvallis winning
18 to 14 after the regular play
ing time ended 14-all.
Dallas has a busy schedule Just
ahead, playing at Perrydale to
morrow night, at McMinnville
next Tuesday and at Indepen
dence, a county league game of
-major importance, Friday night.
Summary of A game:
WITH three decades of big
league piloting in back of
him, Connie Hack, now in
his seventieth year, faces one of
his toughest seasons.
According to all hot stove league
reckonings, the old fox won't have
any walkaway race with his Phila
delphia Athletics in the American
League grind next year. The
Yankees, his bitterest rivals, have
been enormously strengthened by
this Winter's acquisitions from the
minor leagues. The Washington
Senators can be counted upon to
be also up there fighting all the
way. And Chicago and Cleveland
both will show plenty of winning
ball - playing, according to Mack
With Frank Crosetti of the
Coast leagues, and other Pacific
slope stars on the New York ros
ter, the canny Connie expects the
xankee team to give his stellar ag
gregation stiff opposition through
out the race.
Of course, the silver-haired
Quaker City manager is confident
tnat ms noys will win out in the
end, but he isn't discounting the
chances of the other teams. Mack
has never Leen a braggart. Of the
Yankees he says: "They were so
good at the end of last season that
if the race had eone another month
there might have been a much
closer finish. They will be chock-
full of pep next year. They are
well handled and will have better
pitching this season than in 1931."
Connie laughs when you ask him
if he will retire after reaching the
age of seventy. He declares in no
uncertain terms that he win never
turn over the reins of his ball club
until he is of no use to the outfit.
"It's the game that keeps me
young," is his way of nutting it.
Connie would laugh even louder
if you were to tell him that Wash
ington and New York have counted
his pennant - winning team out ef
their 1932 calculations and are
watching each other. It is no
secret that the consensus of
opinion among the Yankees and
Senators is that the Athletics are
washed up and that some of the
best Quaker City players will be

word went around that Mack was
out of the big money. That was
after he had sold players like
"Home-Run" Baker and "Stuffy"
Mclnnia. But Connie fooled them
by buildinr ID the creat marhinn
that carried off three pennants and
two wona j series in succession.
There is no doubt that the old
catcher is as wily-witted a pilot as
ever ran a big league ball team.
He knows human psychology and
he knows the national game. In
ower woras, Be not only can tell
a great player when he sees one,
but he also can get everything pos
sible out ef his men.

Leaguer, "I've been hearing tnat
Connie Mack was finished as a
first-class manager. I've never

thing like that!
